Hodgson dampens expectation on Welbeck

Published Add your comment

England boss Roy Hodgson has cautioned against expecting too much of rising star Danny Welbeck.

The 21-year-old was the Three Lions' match-winner in Kiev on Friday, turning home Theo Walcott's cross 12 minutes from time with the deftest of airborne back heels.

Hodgson said: "I would do well to encourage you not to put too much pressure on the lad. He had a wonderful season with Manchester United and Sir Alex has high hopes for him. Before we start building him up to the skies to knock him down, we should remember he has a lot of time ahead of him."
